Do you want a Gaming Steve Ventrilo server?

Yes please!
No, it seems stupid.
I'd rather have Teamspeak

Gaming Steve Teamspeak?
« on: January 02, 2007, 09:56:03 am »
I was wondering, what would be better than chatting to all my friends on Gaming Steve. Then I thought that Teamspeak would be great! Then I remembered the downside, money. I thought who would be able to pay for it? Gaming Steve has a lot on his hands and it would be harsh just to dump the costs on him. Any single member of the forums wouldn't be suitable for the same reasons as Steve.

An idea hit me! Shareing the cost! Now a UK based 20 slot server costs 10. That is approximatly $20.

Then I thought maybe 20 slot isn't enough. An 100 slot is 50, which is about $100.
I would donate about 10 so we need 40 more.

Anyway, if anyone thinks this is worthwhile post so and why! Do the same if you'd rather not.

I think a Ventrilo server would be a better idea, because Ventrilo has a supreme sound quality when compared to TeamSpeak.

Well the only reason I said Teamspeak is because I have it installed on this computer

Teamspeak... that's a really bad idea. The reason all our posts are so snappy and good isn't because we're good talkers, it's because we take out time what to say!

Speak for yourself! Or don't if that's your thing...


Anyway, stick with Ventrilo. I have used it with many a forum chat and it works great.

Yeah, I also have ventrilo but if it does happen, it's best we create a private server to a section where certain members know the password so no one can screw up the chat. Although, it does seem like we have enough communication on the site with gabbly and all. ::)

One of the reason I suggest it is because I cannot get Gabbly to work!

Stupid IE

EDIT: Right Gabbly is now working...

Sorry to double post, but www.typefrag.com has a 50 user Ventrilo server for $20 a month. I personnally think this is a great deal and would pay for half of that each month.

Look... there is no reason to pay for this.

There is never going to be fifty people from here that want to talk. I would be surprised if there were even ten of us that would talk.

A person can host a Ventrilo server from his computer, it has an 8-slot limit though

Yeah I know. I have a server I use sometimes. Feel free to use that if you really want to talk.

Tell me some time if you want me to set it up.

Perhaps we should make a poll to see how much people really want the server. :-\

I want up, but I won't talk, because you don't deserve to hear my beautiful voice.

Yup.  ::)
